One of the great new enhancements of iOS 12 is Password Autofill. This brings login credentials like usernames, emails, and passwords from password vaults to iOS apps and websites right on the iOS keyboard — and it’s not just limited to Apple’s iCloud Keychain. 1Password 7.2 for iOS 12 brings full support for Password Autofill, promoting the password manager to a first-class citizen on iPhone and iPad.

Simply enable 1Password as a Password Autofill data provider in Settings → Passwords and Accounts → Autofill Passwords and you’ll start to see credentials stored in 1Password suggested on the iPhone and iPad keyboard in iOS 12 apps.

This lets you tap the password prompt, authenticate with Touch ID or Face ID, and automatically fill out your username and password as needed without switching apps or even using the 1Password extension from the share sheet.

Password Autofill in iOS 12 works with up to two data providers, too, so you can use both iCloud Keychain and 1Password simultaneously without being all-in on either password manager.

1Password 7.2 includes a handful of other improvements as well:

New – 1Password is built for and requires iOS 12. – 1Password now supports Password AutoFill on iOS 12! – 1Password now keeps itself up to date with the information from your 1Password.com account even when it’s not running, meaning your information is always on your device when you need it. – A brand new font created specifically for 1Password and courtesy of Alan Dague-Greene is now used to display passwords and other secure information. – Account categories and item fields are now localized. {apple-issues#2096}
